        St. Goar on the Rhine

      London: circa 1865. Chromolithograph. Trimmed and mounted on board as issued. In excellent condition, with the exception of a tear in the image. Scratch in upper section of image with small puncture mark. Image size: 16 ¾ x 25 13/16. 22 5/16 x 31 inches. A picturesque view of St. Goar on the Rhine by the celebrated landscape painter, Thomas Richardson. Thomas M. Richardson , born and died in Newcastle upon Tyne, but spent a considerable amount of time traveling in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany, and produced lithographs of the watercolours he did there. This excellent study on the Rhine being a perfect example. The printing, a major element in the success of a chromolithograph, was done by M. & N. Hanhart. Richardson was son and pupil of T. M. Richardson the Elder, who taught him to work in oils and watercolours. After his father's death, Richardson the Younger worked exclusively in watercolour. He was a member of the Society of Painters in Watercolour and a member of the Royal Scottish Academy. Chromolithography was achieved by using a series of carefully registered tint stones to create a smooth richly coloured image. This printing process became immensely popular towards the end of the nineteenth century and was widely used in fine art as well as commercial printing. One of the most important chromolithographic firms was M & N Hanhart in London. The firm, founded by Michael Hanhart, began publishing its first prints in 1840 and remained in business until the end of the century. Hanhart's was known for its large separately published chromolithographs, but it printed everything from book illustrations to song sheets. This stunning print after Richardson is a fine example of Hanhart's superior chromolithographs. Its intense colour and meticulous detailing is common of Hanhart's superior printing techniques representing the best example of nineteenth century chromolithography. Benezit, Dictionary of Artists

        Thomas Spencer Wells autograph letter to Horatio Storer on Ovariotomy + 7 letters on gynecology by others

      1865. Important 19th-Century A.Ls.s. on Abdominal Hysterectomy and Ovariotomy STORER, Horatio R. (1830-1922). Collection of 8 A.Ls.s. to Storer from 8 different physicians, October 8, 1865-November 19, 1878. Various sizes. 16pp. in all, plus postmarked cover to one letter, and a small sepia-toned photograph of a portrait of Benjamin Waterhouse (very faded, chipped and creased). Creased where folded, otherwise fine. A fascinating collection of letters written to one of the foremost American gynecologists of the nineteenth century, mostly pertaining to his successful operation for abdominal hysterectomy-the fourth such operation performed in the United States. The D.A.B. cites Storer as the establisher of the specialty of gynecology, "not hitherto recognized as a distinct branch of medicine," and he was a founder of the Journal of the Gynaecological Society of Boston, the first journal devoted exclusively to the diseases of women. He published many books on gynecological and related topics, including several on abortion, to which he was opposed. His major surgical achievements were the operation for abdominal hysterectomy and the performance, in 1868, of the world's first cesarean-hysterectomy. Storer's correspondents included some of the most distinguished names in American and English surgery: T. Spencer Wells (1818-97), whom Ricci (p. 477) called "the greatest ovariotomist of the preantiseptic age" (see G-M 6056); Edmund Randolph Peaslee (1817-78), author of Ovarian Tumors; Their Pathology, Diagnosis and Treatment, Especially by Ovariotomy, 1872) and performer of the second double ovariotomy in America (1850); Washington Atlee (1808-78), who operated successfully on vesico-vaginal fistula (1860; see G-M 6047), and who together with his brother John performed the first abdominal myomectomy (1844); Willard Parker (1800-1884), the first American to operate for appendicitis (1867; see G-M 3564); Isaac Hays (1796-1879), longtime editor of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences; Henry Austin Martin (1824-84), who was the first to write on the use of adhesive plaster in surgery. The collection also includes letters from James[?] Dana and J. A. Menzies, who are not noticed in our references. In 1866 Storer published his account of the "Successful Removal of the Uterus and Both Ovaries by Abdominal Section" in the January number of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences. No fewer than five of the eight letters in this collection refer to Storer's operation, the report of which he must have circulated prior to its publication in the journal, as three of these five letters were written in late 1865. Isaac Hays, the editor of the journal that published Storer's paper, wrote to him on October 8 to refer him to Koeberle's performance of the first successful extirpation of the uterus and ovaries (1863; see G-M 6052). Washington Atlee, in his letter of November 19, discussed an unconfirmed report of a hysterectomy performed by Dr. Land, noted that his own brother John had never removed a uterus, and referred Storer to the account of Baker Brown's fatal case in the October 1865 number of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences. Willard Parker, in his letter of November 29, stated that he had never performed abdominal hysterectomy but had once removed a prolapsed uterus through the vulva. The more important of the remaining two letters referring to Storer's operation was that of E. R. Peaslee, written on March 8, 1866; it praised Storer's report as "a most interesting and a very able paper" and one that "must convince all candid minds that extirpation of the uterus is sometimes a justifiable operation." The remaining letter in this series was written on March 5, 1866 by James[?] Dana, who described himself as having "been now almost forty years out of medical practice." Of the three letters that do not mention Storer's operation, the most valuable by far is that of Spencer Wells, who wrote to Storer on April 17, 1867 to discuss his own unsatisfactory experience with use of cautery in ovariotomy, and to report his current success rate after the completion of over 200 ovariotomies. Wells wrote his letter on the blank verso of a printed "Table of Cases to Accompany Mr. Spencer Wells's Fourth Series of Fifty Cases of Ovariotomy," which provides the pertinent data for fifty cases of completed ovariotomy performed between December 1865 and March 1867. Wells reported on 500 such cases between 1856 and 1872, with an overall mortality rate of 25%. In his letter, written when he had completed 207 operations, he gave the mortality rates for the first and second hundred (34% and 28% respectively), as well as the overall rate (31%) and his success rate with the seven operations completed since. Wells also mentioned Storer's "clamp shield," an instrument designed to shield the clamps used in the pre-antiseptic era for the extra-abdominal treatment of the ovarian stump after ovariotomy. Wells had not yet been able to obtain one of these shields, and asked Storer to write to the manufacturer to "stir him up." H. A. Martin's letter, written on November 19, 1878, was a request for a photographic negative of the portrait of Benjamin Waterhouse, which Martin planned to reproduce in an article on Waterhouse and the introduction of vaccination in America; a copy of the photograph is included in this collection. The final letter in this collection was from J. A. Menzies, a British physician in Naples, who discussed the illness of Storer's daughter and the problem of halting the spread of syphilis. D.A.B.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      No Binding. AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, to Reverend J. T. Freeman. Davis writes to Reverend Freeman thanking him for a proposed endowment to support the former President of the Confederacy. The letter provides a poignant glimpse of the former leader's post-war plight. He tells of his personal loss and hardship, but at the same time expresses his pride and gratitude for the enduring love and confidence of the Southern people. JEFFERSON DAVIS AFTER THE END OF THE CIVIL WAR: "At dawn on May 10, 1865, Davis was captured near Irwinville, Ga. He was imprisoned in a damp casemate at Fort Monroe, Va., and was put in leg-irons. Though outraged Northern public opinion brought about his removal to healthier quarters, Davis remained a prisoner under guard for two more years. Finally, in May 1867, he was released on bail and went to Canada to regain his shattered health. Several notable Northern lawyers offered their free services to defend him in a treason trial, which Davis longed for. The government, however, never forced the issue, many believe because it feared that such a trial might establish that the original Constitution gave the states a right to secede. The case was finally dropped on Dec. 25, 1868.... Davis made five trips to Europe in an effort to regain his health, and for a few years he served as president of an insurance company in Memphis, Tenn. In 1877 he retired to Beauvoir, a small Gulf-side estate near Biloxi, Miss., which a patriotic admirer provided for him. There he wrote his Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government. Though pressed to enter the U.S. Senate, he declined to "ask for amnesty," for he felt he had done nothing wrong in fighting for states' rights under the Constitution, and he never regained his citizenship. He remained the chief spokesman and apologist for the defeated South. Davis' citizenship was restored posthumously in 1978" (Britannica).Two pages, folded 8vo sheet with integral blank. Fine.

        Military Map Showing The Marches Of The United States Forces Under Comman Of Maj. Genl. W. T. Sherman. U. S. A. During The Years 1863, 1864, 1865

      St. Louis, 1865. No Binding. Very Good. 26 3/8 x 46 inches. Lithograph. Inscription in red ink. Mounted on acid-free paper, some tape stains, reinforced splits & restoration at few fold intersections, very good. Separately published. The first edition of a remarkably detailed military map that provided the best contemporaneous cartographic record of the Georgia campaign. With a manuscript inscription in behalf of Sherman in the hand of Brevet Colonel William E. Merrill at lower right: "Compliments of Lieut. Gen. Sherman Wm. E Merrill Maj. Engn. & Bvt. Col." The map contains precise and important military detail of the campaign, including the routes of the various corps of the Union army and of the cavalries of both combatants, and the fortifications of both sides. This work was a compilation of the numerous maps made in the field during the campaign as well as of other sources, which are enumerated in the list of "Authorities" above the title. Merrill was head of the Topographical Department of the Army of the Cumberland and was charged with creating the maps to be used by commanders during the campaign depicted here. He directed one of the most remarkable and important mapmaking operations that had yet to be seen in a military context. "And not only did Merrill see to it that Sherman's armies had the best maps of any Civil War army, he made certain that the maps were continually updated and promptly distributed (McElfresh). Because of the distance of the campaign's theatre from Washington, DC, and because commercial maps of the South did not provide adequate detail for military operations, it was deemed necessary to create a fully portable mapmaking facility to accompany the army. A printing press, two heavy lithographic presses, and other printing devices to rapidly create copies were involved. An excellent account of this operation can be found on the Library of Congress web site: http://lcweb2.loc.gov/ammem/collections/civil_war_maps/cwmfm.html The result of this intensive cartographic activity can be seen on this map, which is far and away superior to any commercial map of the period. A smaller version of this map appeared considerably later in the U. S. War Department's Atlas to Accompany the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, 1891-95.Stevenson 72; McElfresh, E. Maps & Mapmakers of the Civil War, pp. 244-45.

        View of New York City from Hoboken, New Jersey

      Thomas W. Whitley, 1865. AN EVOCATIVE EARLY EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY VIEW OF MANHATTAN BY RENOWNED LANDSCAPE PAINTER T.W. WHITLEY Oil on paper laid on panel Paper size: 13 1/2" x 26 1/4" Frame size: 32 1/2" x 36" Signed and dated l.l. WHITLEY 65 This evocative nineteenth-century landscape painting of Manhattan from Hoboken, New Jersey was painted by Thomas W. Whitley, who emigrated from his native England to the United States in the early 1830s. Initially settling in Patterson, New Jersey, he later relocated to New York City where the explosive growth and bustling commerce inspired some of his most notable works. In this painting, the artist rendered the southern tip of the prospering city in the composition's background (beyond the calm waters of the Hudson River and the channel), with Manhattan's steeples visibly rising into the dusky, pink and blue sky. .

        The New York Herald.

      Newspaper, disbound, 23" x 16", 8 pp. Probably removed, dbd, minor staining, a little creasing and fading; otherwise very good.This is an early report under the heading "Important Assassination of President Lincoln." This is the second morning edition with the 3 a.m. update from Edward Stanton, the Secretary of War, which indicates Lincoln was still alive, but in very bad shape. The article describes John Wilkes Booth, "the actor", as the alleged assassin of the president. It describes how Booth entered Lincoln's box and after shooting him, stating "Sic semper tyranis" before he leaped on to the stage. This report gives considerable detail about the how Washington reacted to the news, and the scene at Lincoln's deathbed. There is also a good deal of coverage of the assassination attempt on Secretary of State, William Seward. This paper represents an important piece of American history.

"This was the first journey of its kind undertaken by a Western European; and since it was necessary to avoid suspicion, Vámbéry could not take even fragmentary notes, except by stealth. He returned to Europe in 1864. That following June, he paid a visit to London, where he was treated as a celebrity because of his daring adventures and knowledge of languages. That same year, he published his 'Travels in Central Asia', based on the few, furtive notes he was able to make while traveling with the dervishes. Returning to Hungary, Vámbéry was appointed professor of Oriental languages at the University of Budapest in 1865, retiring in 1905." - Wikipedia

        Crush-paper copy of book of his correspondence from Sept. 1862 to July 1865 (c. 600 letters)

      Colmar, 1862-1865. No Dust Jacket. Unique Manuscript Archive of his Scientific Thought Hirn, Gustave Adolfe (1815-90). Album containing crush-paper copies of ca. 600 A.Ls.s. and Ls.s. written between 13 Sept. 1862 and 9 July 1865. [Colmar, 1862-65]. 280 x 222 mm. Original cloth, suede backstrip with cloth label, paper label on front cover, worn at edges, corners & spine. One or two small tears, otherwise very good internally. Hirn, a civil engineer, was one of the first to investigate the phenomena of the steam engine, and he made several fundamental contributions to mechanics and thermodynamics, including his Exposition analytique et experimentale de la theorie mecanique de la chaleur (1862), one of the first systematic treatises on thermodynamics. The album we are offering contains crush-paper copies of ca. 600 letters that Hirn wrote between 1862 and 1865, shortly after the publication of his Exposition analytique (the crush-paper method of letter duplication involved pressing a freshly written letter against special absorbent paper; only one such copy could be made, so that our album is unique). The album almost certainly represents the most complete manuscript archive of Hirn's scientific thought and activity during this time, since the original letters duplicated here were sent to a number of different recipients, and many have probably not survived. Among the letters are several written to Francois Napoleon Marie Moigno (1804-84), the eminent Jesuit mathematician and physicist; one of most interesting of these is Hirn's letter to Moigno of 16 February 1864, containing a long and detailed discussion, intended for publication, of the thermodynamic principles of Rudolf Clausius (1822-88). Clausius's name appears numerous times in Hirn's correspondence, along with those of physicist Leon Foucault (1819-68) and chemist Henri Estienne St. Claire Deville (1818-81). Another letter, of 13 December 1862, is to Charles X. Thomas, inventor of the first commercially successful calculator; Hirn thanked Thomas (also a native of Colmar) for the receipt of his 16-digit Thomas Arithmometer, which Hirn used daily in his "laborious calculations in physics and mechanics." Hirn was impressed enough with the Thomas de Colmar Arithmometer that he published a paper on it the following year ("Notice sur l'utilite de l'arithmometre et de l'hydrostat," Annales du genie civil, 2nd part, 2 [1863]: 113-17; 152-64), which included "an exposition of advanced techniques which extended the arithmometer's reach beyond the apparent restrictions of the four basic arithmetical rules" (Johnston). Other letters in the album relate to Hirn's interests in climatology and meteorology, or to his business activities as director of the mechanical department of the mill he managed jointly with his brother-it was his connection with this mill that first led Hirn to investigate the mechanics of heat. Time has permitted us to make only a cursory examination of this unique album; a thorough study will surely reveal other letters of equal or greater interest. Wheeler Gift for Moigno. Aspray et al., Computing before Computers, p. 50 (Thomas). Johnston, "Making the Arithmometer Count" (internet reference).

        AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL, 19TH CENTURY EPHEMERA

      1865. Very Good. [AMERICANA - 19th CENTURY EPHEMERA] AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL. Buffalo, NY: Express Printing Company for the American Cow Milking Machine Co. [n.d. ca. 1865]. 42 x 26 3/4 inches. Woodblock printing: Boldest typeface measures 10 inches tall. L. O. Colvin's "American Cow Milker" was patented in 1860 as the first use of teat cups with a vacuum. The milker was used in England, but the constant vacuum pressure caused problems with the cows' teats. He sold the patent in England for about $5,000, after selling over 1,500 machines. He continued to make improvements and was more successful in America where this undated broadside was published. "Triumphant Success | The Most Important and Valuable Invention of the 19th Century" proclaims the headline; the company is seeking business men to invest/sell the machines; the farmer is being courted. "A sure cure for aching hands & kicking cows." Several archival tape repairs to reverse with no loss of text. Heavy newsprint stock, printed in black. A few small closed tears to edges, and some light foxing. Very good overall. We have located a smaller version of this advertisement, but none this size.

        BIRDS EYE VIEW OF NEW YORK AND ENVIRONS" - A HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF NEW YORK CITY

      Kimmel & Foster New York: Kimmel & Foster, 1865. 140 x 203 mm (5 1/2 x 8"). Attractively matted.Evidence of previous matting (faint brown line at bottom and along right, outside the image, where earlier mat must have been), otherwise fresh, clean, uncreased, and altogther fine. Looking at the island from a southern vantage point, this is a fascinating view of Manhattan and environs at the end of the Civil War, before the great bridges spanned the river. The surprisingly verdant Battery Park is in the foreground, with ships docked at the piers on the tip of the island. The river is swarming with boats, from three-masted tall ships to steamships and ferries--and more vessels are docked all around the edges of the island and across the river at the Brooklyn piers. The great bridges that will connect Manhattan with the outer boroughs have yet to be built, and the tallest structures in the city are the church steeples. In the far distance uptown, we can see the beginnings of Frederick Law Olmstead's Central Park. The density of the buildings and the bustling river traffic establish it as a vital commercial center, the seed of what would become the financial capital of the world.

The annexation of Texas and the addition of California and New Mexico to the United States had led to increased exploration and research in the South West. "At first the Audubons were receptive...however, Cassin wanted shared credit on the title page and a free hand in correcting the errors of nomenclature of the elder Audubon, a touchy point with the sons.

        HYPERION: A ROMANCE. ILLUSTRATED WITH TWENTY- FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE RHINE, SWITZERLAND, AND THE TYROL BY FRANCIS FRITH

      London: Alfred William Bennett, 1865.. 270pp. plus twenty-four original photographs. Quarto. 20th-century three- quarter green morocco and cloth by Root & Son, a.e.g. Front hinge cleanly separated. All of the photographs in excellent condition. Very good. The first American literary volume illustrated with original photographs. The twenty-four beautiful photographs by Francis Frith are scenes captured during Frith's travels in Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe. Includes a preface by Frith. "The book is notable for its direct association of landscape photographs as non-literal visual equivalents of literary ideas" - TRUTHFUL LENS. "...HYPERION was a touristic narrative. Set in the early nineteenth century, the story's trajectory follows the course of the Rhine, with stops at tourist sites. The year before this edition was published, Frith had traveled the Rhine, and from those travels had produced THE GOSSIPING PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE RHINE. It is possible to imagine him picking up a copy of HYPERION on those travels, much like the clientele of Tauchnitz, or simply bringing it along to guide his perambulations and then deciding that it was a good idea to illustrate it himself. In any case, the photographs that resulted from this trip found their way into HYPERION...Thus Frith was not only the consumer but also the producer of the illustrated novel, and performed both the functions of the reader tracing the protagonist's journey and of the photographer confirming the fact of the journey through photographs" - Armstrong. See Carol Armstrong's book for an exhaustive scholarly treatment of the relationship between Frith's photography and Longfellow's text. TRUTHFUL LENS 106. Armstrong, SCENES IN A LIBRARY (1998), pp.284, 332-42, and passim.

He was replaced as Provisional President by Patrice de Mac-Mahon, Duke of Magenta, who became full President of the Republic, a post Thiers had coveted, in 1875 when a series of constitutional laws officially creating the Third Republic were enacted.
